Adult Classes

Adult classes start around 12 years of age. You can expect a good workout in a safe and very informative environment. Mike Wall and the instructors of Paradise Valley Karate work to make sure all are involved and learning.  We focus on movement and self defense while integrating all of the classical karate principles.

Youth

Our Youth groups run from 7-12. We believe that all good behaviors stem from respect and we work very diligently to teach this principle along with fitness, self defense, confidence and goal setting.

Tiny Tots

Our Tiny Tots begin at 4 years of age. It's important for kids to learn to use their bodies. We work on listening and motor skills as we teach karate basics and principles while integrating play to keep it fun. This isn't playtime though, games will teach a principle.

Families

Our favorite is the family. There is nothing better than a family spending time together doing karate. Now we don't combine kids and adults into classes but we do help engender participation as a family.
We offer family discounts.
